Picking up the pieces of America

To the editor,

When you love something and it is broken, you try and fix it. These were the words of a congressional house member when asked why he was on his knees, picking up trash and destruction after your capitol was invaded by radicalized Trump and Q-Anon supporters.

For those of us who love America, we must acknowledge that our country is broken. Each of us can do something to fix it. But first we have to stop lying about our history. We also have to start taking full responsibility for the choices we make in our lives. We have to put a stop to the fear and hatred we encounter. Every day we have to fix what we can to make America what we dreamed it could be, even though we may be momentarily on our knees.
